Resignation from the Australian Sex Party

To Whom It May Concern,

The decision to deny members a say in the decision to deregister the Australian Sex Party at the federal level is a decision I cannot in good conscience support.

Members were promised a vote on a name change, but on this even bigger move, they have once again been taken for granted.

Members who were not at the meeting last Tuesday have woken to learn this news not from the party but the Herald Sun. Understandably they find this insulting. So do I. Even at the end the party couldn’t be bothered with an email informing members of this move.

Therefore I have chosen to resign from the party effective immediately.

I want to thank Fiona and Robbie for the trust and encouragement they’ve shown me over the past seven years. I want to say thank you to all the friends I’ve made throughout numerous campaigns, I cherish the experiences we’ve had together, and I hope those friendships continue.

I am proud of the role I’ve played in establishing Safe Access Zones around abortion facilities in Victoria, and if I achieve nothing more in the public sphere I will know that together we’ve achieved something that makes a real difference to many Victorians every day.

I wish everyone well if they choose to go with Reason, but in my conscience I cannot do the same.

Sincerely,
Chris Johnson
